Not-So-Iron Fanboy: Cooking Guide Cook-Off

As soon as the Cooking Guide was released in English, we here at DS Fanboy understood one thing: it was necessary that we put the software to the test in a bloody, violent, no-holds-barred, steel cage cook-off the likes of which would put Iron Chef (both versions) to shame. Sadly, budget constraints (and, uh, laws) prevented the sort of Thunderdome-esque event we hand in mind, though, so instead, we're just having a normal cook-off.

One hobbyist cook. One bachelor. One shot at three recipes, supported by the Cooking Guide. Will they be able to produce the same meal, with the same results? Will the Guide serve as a workable cookbook for the knowledgeable, and an aid for those who aren't? We put it to the test.

Kururin Doughnuts randomly appears on Gametrailers with English subtitle

Is Kururin Doughnuts getting localized? You probably don't remember this as the donut-starring platformer with bonus dessert recipes that we highlighted back in March. It was released in Japan last week, and now some gameplay footage has appeared on Gametrailers.

The mere existence of the video on Gametrailers isn't conclusive proof of anything, since undeniably Japanese clips of Stock Trader Shun, Let's Try Fortune Telling DS, and our favorite, Doki Doki Majo Shinpan, were uploaded on the same day. But what piqued our interest was the subtitle given to the game: Enchanted Pastry. It's not just a translation of the Japanese subtitle, Okashi na Recipe (Recipe for Sweets)-- so where did Gametrailers get it? Either they made it up or there's a US trailer involved. Or something else. Enjoy some video after the break!

NoE confirms Cooking Navi localization

It's a good time to be a DS gamer, especially if you think games could be serious business. In an interview with German financial magazine Finanzen, NoE's Laurent Fischer talked about the Wii shortage as well as the success of the DS, and the impact of bringing the talking Cooking Navigator to European handheld owners. Unsurprisingly, the cooking simulation, which guides users through recipes, is seen as a follow-up to Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training. We can't wait to see the English-language version in action!

Platforming and cooking: two great tastes that taste great together?

Kururin Donuts (Spinning Donuts) is a mascot platformer starring a giant donut. That's not so crazy. It's quirky, at best. It's a nice, colorful game, at least, and it looks a lot like Sonic Rush, which we liked just fine.

But here's where it gets weird, and where we start getting excited about this game: after you complete a level, you are rewarded with a recipe for a dessert. We aren't interested because it's an attempt to shoehorn one of the new DS fads into an otherwise average game. Although, now that we mention that, that is kind of noteworthy.

No, we're interested because your avatar is a dessert, and the recipes are also for desserts. So, there's a good chance that you'll learn how to cook and eat your character. That is brutal. We wonder if this will get a CERO Z rating because of the violence.

Screens featuring the doomed, tragic hero are after the post break.

But can it cook?

One cooking game, it seems, was not enough -- Nintendo of Japan is bringing another kitchen assistant to the handheld, and this time it has a nifty accessory. Forget silicon protectors or oversized Ziploc bags, get a magnetic holder for your DS and stick it on the fridge out of splash-range. We're not sure if the accessory will be packaged in with the title, but it would make sense.

DS Kondate Zenshu
, apparently a sequel to the earlier Cooking DS (not to be confused with Cooking Mama), contains over 1000 recipes and will include WiFi functionality. Looks like we better start those Japanese lessons ... if only someone would do something similar for an English audience!

We debate the hot topics!
